I agree that a few key plays could have made a difference for this team. What this shows more than anything is the lack of leadership on the floor at crunch time. They need that one guy who could step up and get the guys where they are supposed to be when things break down. The last play in the home Nebraska loss is a good example of this. I wonder how many times this year I have wished for a jump shot challenged Aaron Craft on the floor in those situations just for his leadership skills.
Torrance Gibson may be back. That could certainly be an addition that would help at this position.
Not to rain on the parade here but I have a little perspective on dot numbers for OSU students. My nephew and son both graduated in the class of 2015 and applied to OSU. During the application process you are assigned your dot number with your last name and the order in which they processed things for all the students with the same last name over the years. My nephew did not go to OSU his freshman year and my son did. My nephew transferred in his sophomore year (this year) and has a lower dot number than my son based upon his application timing before his freshman year. That means that the dot number is assigned before you are officially enrolled as a student. Okudah may have his only based upon the application process and not be planning to attend. He could just be listed as an accepted student at this point.
Remember that this could be the ESPN Gameday game this year. If that is the case, then the students will start gathering on Friday night in the oval this year. I know a lot of them camped out starting late Friday night for the MSU game last year even with the weather being poor.
Anyone else think that Jent was brought back to be the next head coach in training?
Pretty much my reaction, too.
I have said that this was a good idea for months. Wow, I can't believe it actually happened.
There is a very strong sense of state pride in NJ in everything from jersey tomatoes to Bruce Springsteen. If they can tap into those feelings, then they are on the right track.
In my opinion, Harbaugh had to come in as coach and treat it like a program that has never had a history of winning. Michigan has to have publicity stunts and make news to get into the conversation for the kids that they are recruiting. These kids don't remember when Michigan was consistently good. My kids are in school at OSU and have no memory of Michigan being a threat to OSU at all.
Best was 1985 vs Iowa and Chuck Long. Spielman and Pepper Johnson were awesome.
Worst was in 2011 vs Michigan State at home in a 10 to 7 loss. No offense the entire game until the end when Bauserman (yes Joe Bauserman) threw a TD pass.
Going 2 and 1 in the final 3 would put them at 12 and 6 in the regular Big 10 season and they should at least be in the conversation for the bubble.
It doesn't matter who the Cavs have as a coach. If the ball doesn't move and everyone just stands and watches Lebron dribble down the shot clock, they won't ever have a consistent enough offense to win it all.
I would say LSU. Always go with the home team.
Just a matter of time
Almost all of my favorites have been mentioned but I didn't see Dazed & Confused. Can't not watch it when I surf on to it.
How did that work out for the #1 seed last year?
Still waiting to see how Cinci responds to injuries. They have been one of the healthiest teams this year. In the NFL, injuries are bound to come up at some point.
The Love Boat was awesome. Thought of it recently when that big hurricane was threatening Puerto Vallarta.
Lurk every day. Upvote quite a bit. Comment rarely.
There is no such thing as a bad Dazed & Confused reference. Awesome.
I have watched a much improved UM team march down the field on almost every drive for 3 out of 4 games. And they did it against better teams than we have played.
So you are feeling like you would rather take TTUN's situation right now rather that what we have going with our offense? Seriously?
Always an upvote for an Old School reference.
I agree. I wonder if they are saving this wrinkle for later. It just seems that he would be a natural with his ability to make someone miss.
